We love to run in and around Belfast*

Over the years we've run everything from 5km to 100 mile round tracks, up hills, down streets, through forests and along rivers in Belfast. We now want to share our running skills, experience and knowledge of Belfast with you.

All our team are experienced and qualified runners. We hate treadmills with a passion, preferring to run outdoors. Our goal is to help runners of all abilities with training, races and running tours.

*Within 40 mins of Belfast, there are the Mourne Mountains, numerous forests, coastal paths, hill runs and beaches. Derry, Dublin, Enniskillen, the Wicklow Way and the Giant's Causeway are all within 2 hrs of Belfast. We're happy to facilitate runners, races and random requests. If you would like a specific itinerary or tailored running package let us know.
